Joan is highly sought after for her creative curiosity and collaborative spirit.

As an assistant to stylist Andrea Lieberman, Joan developed her signature style: a synthesis of punk rock ethos, street style ambition, and high fashion execution. Working as Andrea’s right hand, she enacted this unique vision, helping style Jennifer Lopez’s iconic and attention grabbing looks for music videos and award shows. During that long-term working relationship, Joan also helped style Gwen Stefani for photo shoots and made costumes for her tours with her multi-platinum band No Doubt and as a solo artist. At the birth of Gwen's brand L.A.M.B., Joan was involved in styling the line’s fashion shows and later acted as a creative consultant for the clothing line. As an assistant costume designer on Madonna’s MDNA World Tour, Joan worked directly with the dancers and the band to create their memorable stage looks. When Beyoncé filmed her epic visual album “Lemonade” Joan was recruited to be part of the team to help bring those now infamous looks to life. In addition to styling celebrity clients, Joan continues her long-term creative relationship with Andrea Lieberman through the clothing line A.L.C., including styling look books and being a creative adviser for the line. Whether it’s styling a red carpet moment, an ad campaign, or photo shoot, Joan is straightforward and authentic. Her discretion, collaborative working style, instincts for trend forecasting, and understanding of style and context makes Joan a unique and rare find in the world of fashion stylists.
